Jon Scheyer Signs With Israel’s Maccabi Tel Aviv

After playing some in the D-League this past season, former Duke Blue Devil Jon Scheyer has signed a two-year deal to play in Israel for Maccabi Tel Aviv. Via Sportando: “Big signing for Maccabi Tel Aviv who landed former Duke star Jon Scheyer for the next two years. The guard went undrafted in 2010 and has been staying without a team for long time. In February he signed for Rio Grande Valley Vipers in NBDL averaging 13.1ppg with 4rpg and 4apg. In his last season at Duke he won the NCAA title averaging 18.2ppg, 3.6rpg and 4.9apg.”

    Great move by Maccabi, getting the most Euready college hooper out of the ’10 class. Even happier for Scheyer after that freak eye injury.

    Jon Scheyer was my favourite player in ’10 class and on that Duke team, if Singler, Nolan Smith can make it so can Jon – just needs the right situation: Training under Steve Nash perhaps…?

    The Scheyer signing comes one day after Trajan Langdon announced his retirement from CSKA Moscow. Another decade of Duke guards lighting up the Euroleague sounds about right. Congrats and good luck Jon!
